7.62x54R Projectile ID


#1

I just got a 7.62x54R round with a tip color code that is unknown to me. Mind you I know virtually none of them. It is in the copper washed case with a raised hstp of 21/73 (12 o’clock/6 o’clock).
The projectile is marked silver/white from the tip to 5mm down with a 3mm yellow strip below that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nick,
This is a Hungarian Type DPS - a heavy ball round for MG use.
Have a look at this excellent site; 7.62x54r.net (although I’ll be amazed if I’ve managed to put the link in correctly!)
